including adding 70 libraries, science labs, even air conditioning. for many it's not what's gained but what's lost and where. neighborhood schools in some of chicago's poorest communities. the decisions were based on low enrollment but others say race made a role. an outraged carrie austin, an alderman, told "the chicago tribune," quote, every time the whites go to screaming and hollering, they back off and steam roll over black and brown folks. not this time. and she's not the only one who believes that. you think it's the black communities that often are asked to sacrifice first? >> in this case, yes, i do. yes, i do. >> reporter: this is 70th street in the heart of the city's south side and this is the local elementary school. parents are proud of it. the sign up there would bear that out. soaring to new heights. all of which would be very good if it wasn't slated to be closed. and what is going to happen? >> i really don't know. i don't know what's going to happen. >> reporter: parents also fear chicago's notorious gang problems as kids cross into strange neighborhoods to attend new sch
graders. the program's goal is to motivate these students to explore science, technology, engineering and math as they continue their education. military volunteers apply abstract principles to real-world situations by leading tours and giving lectures on the use of stem in different settings and careers. i'm sure that's a nice thing to happen. i'm sure that star base is -- it's nice that fifth graders are able to hear from members of the military. meanwhile, we can't deploy an aircraft carrier. with a war going on, a budget crisis at our doorstep, this is how we elect to spend our taxpayers' defense money. another example is $11.3 million in increase for the civil air program or c.a.p. c.a.p. is a volunteer organization that provides aerospace education to young people, runs a junior cadet program and assists when possible to providing emergency services. its members are hard working, we are grateful for their volunteerism. this year as in the past, the senate armed services committee authorized the president's request for c.a.p. funding. however, c.a.p. is an auxiliary and this shou
're on the brink of incredible breakthroughs in neurological science that could help either find the cure for alzheimer's or do the cognitive stretchout. we've got to spend money to save money. let's put the money into research, let's deal with alzheimer's, parkinson's, lou gehrig's disease, the things that break the family budget, break the family's heart, and also contribute to our public debt. but we can get there if we make wise and prudent choices. most of the people in nursing homes are really primarily women over the age of 80. and what are we going to do? are we going to abandon them? so, mada mr. president, this but is unkind to women. but its also unkind -- and children -- in terms of the opportunity structure. the ryan budget caps and freezes pell grants at $5,645. it requires frame families thate less than $25,000 to qualify for a pell grant. that means that if you're -- many people who seek pell grants are single mothers, and there's recent data out that shows so many of our families now -- 63% -- are in single-parent house holes and it can be a single mother or single dad bu
is not rocket science in terms of identifying what the issues are. there are two issues here, mr. president. one of them is taxes, and the other is medicare. and the two of them, in fact, are inextricably linked in many respects because i've heard some on the other side of the aisle say i'll look at ways to reform taxes if colleagues on the democratic side will look at ways to protect medicare and at the same time hold down its cost. and we've heard other senators say the reverse. and so these issues are really inextricably linked. and one of the reasons that i support this budget this evening, mr. president, is that i think this budget provides significant space, significant space for democrats and republicans as this process goes forward to produce bipartisan solutions on those two issues, the tax question and the medicare issue in the days ahead. and let me take just a few minutes. senator coats talked about our bipartisan efforts. i've had a chance really for the last five years to work with two very thoughtful conservative republicans, senator coats and our former colleague, senator gregg,
at a time when we need to be encouraging our children to pursue careers in science and education and research, for biomedical research, we clearly send a message that this may not be the career you want to pursue and, at the same time, as other countries increase their support for biomedical research, we send a message that maybe even though you decide you want to pursue this career, maybe you should pursue it someplace else. this is a serious problem that desperately needs our attention. and so i'm going to ask my colleagues to support an amendment that establishes a clear understanding of the value of biomedical research, of both, again, that opportunity to increase the longevity of our lives, to improve the quality of our lives, to combat those diseases that are so devastating to so many families in our country, knowing that when we do that, not only are we improving individual lives, the well-being of families across our nation, but we are also investing in an opportunity to reduce the long-term cost of health care in the united states. now, madam president, this issue is one

visas. the stem issue is for science, technology, engineering or map, which again, there is definitely a labor shortage there. there is an effort to actually in -- separate legislation specifically of those industries to get a number of visas students andbring foreign nationals to be able to fill those jobs. now, the white house proposal in itsd stemmed -- stem proposal that was leaked, as well as included the ability for individual studying in those industries at an american university, that when they graduate they would able to stay in the united states with a green card to be the to pursue and build jobs. pennsylvania on the republican line. caller: yes, good morning. my family --trace my family first came here in 1650, okay? what i want to talk about is, illegal immigrants have children and they go to the constitution, which makes them american citizens. however, if you go to the library of congress and of up our immigration laws, they are not automatically citizens. you have to go through the law books. they had problems with that because they did not want to people from england a
with all the breakthroughs of new science and technology. and it is virtually impossible to get people in washington, d.c. to actually learn how to think about a new world. and i commend all of you -- [applause] -- to go to gingrich productions.com. you'll see a newsletter entitled highness of the future versus prisoners of the past. it captures exactly where we are. we stand today on the edge of a great future, but washington is in both parties. now, i want to ask in part to help us find the pioneers of the future. when you see new ideas, new approaches, new developments, let us know at gingrich production. will try to develop a new university. courses can we love you to either take a course or offer a course or create a workshop. that starts with what reince priebus is doing it is deeper and longer and broader and includes public policy as well as techniques and technology. but we need your help. this is literally a 50 year struggle. october 2719 safety for ronald reagan, national television, you and i are told increasingly we have to choose between a left and a right. well, i would
island, democratic caller. degree inhave a political science from the university of massachusetts. professors were saying you have to look at the situation from another planet. you have to look at the fact that this man did attack another country. no oneed to me that really knew whether he had weapons of mass destruction or not. we had to go in there, i thought, because he was kind of like a hitler. he had the same attitude as hitler, from what i read up on. i think the united states did the right thing. syria, i disagree with that. it is an internal war. that is the only problem i have with that. host: on syria, two headlines for you this morning -- host: the front of the washington post -- mike in california, republican caller. caller: good morning. can we just stop with this drama? georged not start with bush. it was called the iraqi exchange act of 1998. you can still go on youtube and -- forideo of al gore their terrorist acts. to sit around -- they say the ones who win the war -- to sit around and listen to all these democrats and liberals acting like this was george bushes
of it for strategic investments in education and science, r&d, you know, moving the economy. and a third to prefund the liability for social security for the next 75 years. imagine if we had done that. instead, what happened was the surplus was put into a huge supply-side tax cut benefiting, as we know now, the wealthiest in the country, adding to a situation where the wealthy have gotten wealthiest and wealthiest in the last decade and the middle class has shrunk and shrunk and there are more and more people just struggling today. so it's all put into a large tax cut. and then we proceeded to go into two wars that weren't paid for, medicare prescription drug plan not paid for, and nothing else paid for, for a decade, and we ended up with the largest deficit in the history of this country. and that's what this president walked into and that's what we have been faced with. now, when we look at where the debt has come from and why it's important that we focus on the economy, we know that the biggest piece of where the debt came from was the tax cuts geared to wealthiest americans, what has been famou
. the national science foundation funds lots of great scientific endeavors in this country. as a matter of fact, they have about four times as many applications for grants as they have money to give out. but they spend a considerable amount of money doing such things as funding -- quote -- "research in political science." in 2008 they spent $10.8 million. $10.9 in 2009, $10.8 million in 2011 and $10.1 million in 2012. what this amendment does is prohibits the national science foundation from wasting federal resources on political science projects and redirects that to other areas with n.s.f. that's going to give the american people a much greater return on their investment. let me give you some examples of what they're funding. campaigns and elections, citizen support in emerging and established democracies, bargaining processes, electoral choice, democratizeization, political change and regime transitions. all important things if we weren't in a budget crisis and a spending crisis. but tell me whether or not you'd rather have the next new computer chip generation developed through a grant at t
, we have one somewhere else i can't remember. $2.6 billion. science, technology, education and math. we all agree it's important. the pentagon has over 100 programs. the pentagon itself has over 100 programs. and then we have another 105 or so programs spread across the rest of the agencies. 13 different agencies have a science, technology and engineering. why is that in the department of education? as i finish this, i won't go to the next chart just on the basis of time. i just outlined a whole bunch of different programs, not one of them has a metric on it that says we're successful or unsuccessful. not one of them. each of these agencies have multiple programs run across multiple organizations. what we have discovered on job training is that we're real good in job training with federal programs of employing people in job training. we're terrible in terms of giving them a life skill that will give them a lifetime work capability. let me take a short time to show you some examples. you can see why we have such big charts. here are the federal preschool and daycare programs. so if y
